Sarah Merzak – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- In 2016, LRHS started a new tradition to celebrate the school’s faculty. Every month, the Mustang Faculty Award is passed on from a previous winner to its new recipient. They also get to elect who they believe deserves it.
This month the Mustang award went to LRHS technology specialist Karen Hinkle. Testing coordinator Jeff Simmons gave her the award based on her work ethic and amazing, strong personality.
Hinkle’s strength is also present in her personal life, being a breast cancer survivor. Simmons added,
“She helps us all and has been especially helpful over the last two years considering her personal challenges,” said Simmons.
